Tyr To Record New Album, Gearing Up For Paganfest 2013

Tyr, hailing all the way from the Faroe Islands, will once again return to North America and this time the band will be performing as part of Paganfest 2013 with Ensiferum, Heidevolk, Trollfest, and Helsott.

The tour will begin on Saturday, March 30th in Denver, CO, and wraps up on April 21st in New York, NY at the Gramercy Theater. Tickets are on sale now, and the list of dates can be found below.

Following Paganfest, Tyr will begin recording a seventh full-length album. The title and art are yet to be announced and are to be considered works in progress, but vocalist/guitarist Heri Joensen has divulged that the album "is about women. Earthly women, valkyries and goddesses. It touches on subjects from Nordic mythology such as the quest for fame, death in battle and Valhalla."

Some of the song titles thus far include: "Mare Of My Night" and "Come My Valkyrie." Tyr has also confirmed that the band will collaborate with producer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Aborted, Mercenary) for the fifth consecutive album. Hansen has produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered the band's previous four albums: "The Lay of Thrym," "By the Light of the Northern Star," "Land," and "Ragnarock."
